If you were at the Holy Cross versus Georgetown game this Saturday and left before the fourth quarter you might have been wondering if the offense was going to break through in the red zone. Sader Nation breathed a sigh of relief when they finally did and seemed to shake off what might have been first game jitters.
Labor Day Weekend is historically the start of the College Football Season. Worcester can enjoy great football this season at Holy Cross’ Fitton Field with Senior Quarterback Dominic Randolph in the hunt for breaking all sorts of records.
The Holy Cross Crusaders defeated the Georgetown Hoyas 20-7 despite the ability for Holy Cross to capitalize on great offensive drives in the first 3 quarters. The defense kept them in the game though holding the Hoyas to only 7 points. This gave the Crusaders a chance to take the lead in the 4th quarter and the rest is history. Randolph passed for an unbelievable 414 yards allowing him to break the Holy Cross record for career passing yards as well as the Patriot League record for the same.
My family came with me to the game and it was another great example of inexpensive family outings in the Worcester area. Similar to the Worcester Tornadoes experience the kids enjoyed the smaller venue especially when the cheerleaders came around giving candy to the kids. The tickets are $12 for adults and $5 for kids so it proved to be a pretty economical trip. Holy Cross is holding a special kid’s day event this Saturday for the game against Sacred Heart. The event is called Price Chopper Kid’s Day which includes a clinic with the players and coaches, free t-shirts and $1 tickets.
